Moved here 4 years ago. I have some extra bait if your looking. We take a lot of pics of bears, and my uncle liek to feed a few just to watch, no hunting there. He ahs about 400 pound cinnimon he has been seeign every year for about 6 years now that would look nice on my wall. I am not hunting this year as we had a baby, and trapping is taking up more and more of my time.

I will drop you a little hint that I learned over the years of baiting. If you can help it stay away from grain as bait. Corn/oats! Yes bears do eat it up but the more grain you put in a bait the more coons show up and clean the bait before thet bears can. try pastries, candies, premixed baits, and resturant greese.

We never use grains, but others up there do and i enjoy the fact that they do for the very reason you stated. keeps the coon and other varmits at their sites. Have ahd coon eat some sweets in the past.

At camp we use molassis and a horse feed called sweet feed. I mix them together and put them at the bait sites each day. We only bring in a 5 gal. pail each day. We do this about 1 month before the hunters are coming to get the bears on a good routine.

I'll be using pastries, grease, liqorice, bear lunch, popcorn, fruitloops, pizza, an I orderd a 55 gal. drum of granola thats mixed with chocolate syrup, candy, creal an stuff, an dog food. A bacon bear ball an bacon spray. I just dont have time to work on the home made version of the ball but I came really close. Boar

I use stuff that will take a weeks worth of rain and still be there - like licorice, fruit snacks, candy hearts and cookie dough. I stay away from the dogfood, bread and cereal - one rain and its garbage and wrecks the rest of your bait.

i have heard that fish is a very poor choice of bait. once it goes bad, its bad. and just sitting over a bait of rotting fish doesn't sound like much fun to me.

I might be wrong, but I think it says in the regs that you can't use any animal remains that contain any bones. I think whole fish would qualify under this reg.

They sure do stink though - and attract every biting insect for about 10 miles around!

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
